Joke of The Day

 Three Irishmen are sitting in the pub window seat, watching the front door of the brothel over the road.
The local Methodist vicar appears, and quickly goes inside.
"Will you look at that?" says the first Irishman. "And didn't I always say what a bunch of lying hypocrites they are?"
No sooner are the words out of his mouth than a Rabbi also goes inside.
"There's another bunch who try to fool everyone with their pious preaching and funny little hats," says the second Irishman.
They continue drinking their beer roundly condemning the vicar and the rabbi when they see their Catholic Priest knock on the door and go inside.
"Oh, how sad!" says the third Irishman. "One of the girls must have died!"

Quotes of the Day

"It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's simply that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody."
- Brendan Behan
"I never met a pub I didn't like."
-Pete Slosberg, Founder of Pete's Brewing Company, the brewery was discontinued on March 1st, 2011.
“Booze, broads, and bullshit. If you got all that, what else do you need?”
Harry Caray (March 1st, 1914 – February 18th, 1998), an American baseball broadcaster for the Chicago Cubs.
